Marco Island : Sunset Tripping Along the Beach

Just checked in at the Marriott hotel in Marco Island, Florida Resort near Naples. Its a beautiful property with an amazing view of the beach and truly perfect for weekend getaways.This world-class resort is situated on three miles of pristine beachfront property and offers an exhilarating retreat from the ordinary.

Marco Island was originally named San Marco Island by Spanish explorers. It is is a city in Collier County, Florida, United States, located on an island by the same name in the Gulf of Mexico located at Southwest Florida's Gulf coast. It is graced with miles of white-sand beaches, luxurious real estate, beautiful year-round weather, sumptuous restaurants, fine shopping, dining, lively entertainment, attractions and plenty of recreational activities from boating and fishing, to golf and tennis, and more. All set amid the stunning subtropical beauty that is unique to Southwest Florida's Gulf coast.

The Marco Island Marriott Beach Resort features a lavish spa with Balinese-influenced treatments. It has two private 18-hole championship golf courses at the Hammock Bay Golf & Country Club, and spacious accommodations with premier amenities, technology upgrades, and views of the Florida Gulf Coast.

Nearby, guests can enjoy exciting water sports, parasailing, shelling cruises, and sightseeing adventures. Watch as marine animals like dolphins, sea turtles and birds frolic as you explore the island by land, sea or air. There are a number of parks and preserves within short distance from the island namely,

Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve
Collier-Seminole State Park The Everglades National Park Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve
Big Cypress National Preserve
Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

Delnor-Wiggins Pass Recreation AreaKeywest Express - boat trip to Key West

There's just so many that I only had time to visit the Big Cypress National Preserve :


You have to see for yourself the amazing view during sunset at Marco Island which I was lucky enough to capture and now made it a part of my photo collection.


It was a cold weather morning during my stay there so it was practically not good for swimming. I had to wait later at noon when the sun is high to dip in the pools of the Marriott hotel. Took hot showers in the morning and before going to bed. .

Christmas decorations and a huge Christmas tree at the hotel lobby. Maybe they will keep it there until the end of January.

A walk in the beach was a relaxing activity. Not too many people were outside due to the cold weather but I loved how the cool breeze touched my face and the not-so-bright sunlight providing some heat.

Enjoy a soothing massage of all kinds either at the spa area or within the comforts of your room as you lay on the luxurious comfy beds of the hotel. 


Cocktails and meals are served at any of their eight unique and outstanding restaurants around the resort.  You can also just order for room service and have your meals at your bed or coffee table. 

The view from my hotel room balcony allows me to see the beauty of the beachfront from day until night time. I'm lucky to be able to take trips like these. It will be forever memorable and cherished.
